Rep. Ribble Holds Water Summit

APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – Protecting the Bay of Green Bay is getting special attention.
Tuesday morning, U.S. Representative Reid Ribble (R-Sherwood) met with people and organizations as part of his 2nd annual Save the Bay event.

It puts a focus on environmental issues facing our area. One of the big items Ribble and others are trying to tackle are the algae blooms in Lake Winnebago, the Fox River and now Green Bay.

“This has a big impact on tourism, a big impact on water quality,” Ribble says. “We get our drinking water out of Lake Michigan, predominately, and so we’re concerned about this. No one likes to see the Fox River turn green with algae, or Lake Winnebago, and certainly not Green Bay.”

Representative Ribble will continue his meetings Wednesday morning.
